No good strip clubs within city limits and crack requires a drive to the south-side.

I spent 3 years in St. Pete.  It was like living in a boring cut-scene from "Cocoon"

Drive down to Clearwater and make fun of the $cientologists?

/I Wouldn't actually do that

How long ago was that?  St Pete has changed a lot in the past 5 years.  There is a craft brew bar every 10 feet now.

Definitely check out the Dali Museum.

That said, good strip clubs aren't exactly *far* from city limits.

I unfortunately moved over to Tampa in December after 4 years in downtown St. Pete.  Nearly every week a new bar or restaurant has a grand opening.

/Going to miss walking to Rays games the most.

Toma mas: Definitely check out the Dali Museum.


Agreed.  I very much enjoyed that place too.

Georgie's at the Alibi and Suncoast Resort!  Now closed, but was fun.

Hey now! I like shuffle board, it's the Florida version of curling.
The article only mentioned 1 of the 7 beaches on the west side of St. Pete (Madeira Beach on southward). I mean if you aren't a beach person, or art person, or sports person, or a drinker, or...wait you know what don't come here. We already have enough northerner's here already.

this. Was a surprising and very enjoyable find. Some of the pictures are on a scale that cannot be appreciated except close up.  http://thedali.org/home.php

Take the short drive to Sarasota and see a real life Obamaville with around 3,500 homeless people living in tents. No need to take a long distance poverty tour, pirates cove is right off US 41.

I went to Eckerd College from 1997-2001. A lot of time was spent on the beach and on Dale Mabry. I miss it.

I just moved down to st Pete's, I'm not finding it as horrifying as the rest of the state
 
2014-03-18 04:23:54 PM
Dali Museum is good, Rays games are fun (avoid food poisoning and crappy hot dogs, take your own food!), if you're into the bar scene there are, indeed, lots of new bars/restaurants all along Central Ave. and Beach Drive.  But overall, this town is boring.  The Vinoy is overrated.  And this list seemed to be centered around downtown St. Pete.  There are lots of good/great restaurants in other parts of the city.

/just my opinion

Getting swallowed by a giant sinkhole?

Go to Tampa and get a Cuban Sandwich.

Brocato's is probably the most famous...Columbia in  Yabor City. And La Terresita in Tampa.

Heck just about anyplace in tampa has a decent cuban sandwich.

Nothing wrong with st. petes.  Its not the classy vacation spot for sure.  But I've always had a good time there, gulf side beaches and hotels mean you get a really nice sunset. Prices even at the decent spots aren't bad, and theres a ton of bars you can just straight up walk to on the beach.

I spent a week hanging out at the Undertow Beach Bar down in st. pete beach.  It is a great place to people watch (beach volleyball ftw) and enjoy the environment.

haha, I've lived in St. Pete for like a decade I guess. I've lived all over the state of Florida and it's quite simply the best place in the entire state.

Amusing old jokes from the 1980s about benches and old people make me wonder who exactly are the old folks in this conversation, exactly?

"Thrill Hill" noticeably absent from list........
